6 Writing Tricks I Learnt from IT by Stephen King Paige's PagesI’m trying something a little different with this post.  Although I didn’t feel right reviewing IT by Stephen King, didn’t want to forget what I loved about it and how it motivated me to try out different techniques in my own writing.  

So the purpose of this post is to reflect on great writing techniques used in this book in a practical way that will help me grow.  Who knows, maybe you’ll find something here to inspire you too!  I have a feeling this post will grow into a blog series, so keep an eye out.
